The Kamay Botany Bay National Park (KBBNP) Interpretation and Storytelling Plan defines how the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will connect with existing and new audiences through the delivery of engaging narrative experiences, digital tools, and enhanced interpretive signage. WolfPeak is excited to be involved in this project.
Kamay Botany Bay National Park is a stunning and memorable headland site that embraces the entrance to Botany Bay. The Kurnell precinct of the park is recognised as a place of significance, being the meeting place between Australia’s First Nations People and Lieutenant James Cook and the crew of the HMB Endeavour which occurred in 1770, for the ecological and botanical collections identified and collected by Banks and Solander, as well as being the last known sighting of the French explorer Compté de La Perouse in 1788.
In addition to the historical associations, the area includes significant numbers of Aboriginal cultural sites which provide archaeological evidence of the long and continued association of Aboriginal people with the site and area. The Aboriginal community continue to feel a strong connection to the place and have shared new perspectives on the stories and histories linked to their ancestors. These relate to known events, interaction with Europeans, and the usage of the place. At the same time providing greater acknowledgement of Aboriginal continuation through the colonial period of Australian history into today.
WolfPeak is working closely with the team at Kamay Botany Bay National Park to provide updates on the Interpretation and Storytelling project currently being completed by our Heritage Team. As part of the value add that WolfPeak can provide out clients, we are producing a range of project videos for release to the community and stakeholders to ensure robust, transparent and comprehensive communication throughout the process.
